You Can’t Fake Fashion is a great initiative started by eBay and CFDA (the Council of Fashion Designers of America) in their efforts to minimize the impact of counterfeit goods on original fashion. By substituting the fake goods with “Can’t Fake Fashion” goods.
And to be perfectly honest, judging by the looks of the totes created for the cause, they might stand a chance. Maybe. Diane von Furstenberg, Ralph Lauren, Tory Burch, Robert Geller, Tommy Hilfiger, The Row and many other designers interpreted the anti – counterfeit tote in their manner.

Each of the gorgeous bags below has a retail price of $200. If this tag worries you, reports state that a cheaper, standard version is available too. And that one costs $45. If you had to choose between an impeccably well made Hermes Birkin replica and one of the “Can’t Fake Fashion” totes, which one would you choose?
